The Parameters page of the Add/Edit Report dialog box lets you specify parameters for the report.

Table 1. Add/Edit Report dialog box

Parameter

Description

Category Select the exception category to use for the Scheduler Diagnostics - Filter Report. If you do not want to filter the report by exception category, select "All Categories."
Client ID Select the unique ID for a VMIclient. If you do not want to filter by client ID, select All Clients.
Department Select the departments included in the report. The default is "All Departments."

The departments you can select are pre-filtered based on the site you selected. If the site is "All Sites," then only "All Departments" can be selected for the department. If a specific site has been selected instead of "All Sites," then "All Departments" refers to all departments at that site.

Department membership is determined from the latest dataload of Vocera Voice Server data. When you filter a report by a department, only users that belong exclusively to that department are included. You can select multiple departments to include in the report, including virtual departments. A virtual department represents users that belong to more than one department. The name of a virtual department includes actual department names separated by plus signs (for example, Marketing+Sales).

Note: For custom reports, the Department parameter could be implemented as a drop-down list parameter, which allows you to select only one department, or a multilist parameter, which allows you to select multiple departments.

Device Last Used Select “Greater than or equal to” or “Less than or equal to” to determine which devices to include in the report. If you select “Greater than or equal to,” only devices that were idle (not used) during the specified Number of Days or more will appear in the report. If you select “Less than or equal to,” only devices that were idle during the specified Number of Days or less will appear in the report.
Device Owner Select the owning group(s) to include in the report data. To select all groups, select "All Owners" (the default). If you select “All Owners,” the report is NOT filtered by Device Owner or Owner's Site. To show all devices that have not been assigned an owning group, select "Not Assigned." Device management reports allow you to select multiple groups in the Device Owner field.
Device Sharing If you are generating the Device Last User Access report, specify whether you are reporting on all devices, shared devices, or non-shared devices.
Device Status Select the device status to include in the report data. If you select a device status other than “All Device Statuses,” devices of other status types will not be included in the report.
Device Type Select the types of devices to include in the report data. Choose between “All Device Types” (the default), “B1000,” “B1000A,” “B2000,” “B3000,” “MC70,” or “Smartphone.” If you choose “All Device Types,” the report may include other devices running the Vocera Connect app.
Filter Type Select the types of filter to use for the report. For group integration reports, choose “By Departments” or “By Groups.” For user integration reports, choose “For Departments” or “By Users.”
Group Select the groups to include in the report. The groups you can select are pre-filtered based on the site you selected.
Message Priority Select the priority of messages to include in the report (All Priorities, Normal, High, or Urgent).
Number of Days Specify the threshold of days during which devices were not in use. To include devices in the report regardless of when they were last used, make sure Device Last Used equals “Greater than or equal to” and Number of Days equals 0.
Owner's Site Select the site of the owning group. The default is “All Sites.” This parameter does not affect filtering of the report. Instead, when you select an Owner's Site, the Device Owner list is populated with values for that site. Select a Device Owner to filter the data.
Recognition Filter Rate and Recognition Filter These Recognition Filter and the Recognition Filter Rate are configured in tandem to generate specific report data. The Recognition Filter is a drop-down list used to select Above or Below the Recognition Filter Rate. The filter rate is from 0 to 90%. To see all recognition data leave the filter at the default of above 0.

An example configuration would be the filter set to below and the rate to 70%. In this case the report would only show data for a recognition rate of 0% to 69.9%.

Report Date Range

Use the date range controls to specify the report's date range:

  • Click Last n Days, Last n Weeks, or Last n Months to specify a relative date range. Enter a number in the field to specify how large the range is.

    Last n Days includes the day that the report is run. If you specify “Last 1 Days” for the date range, the report will include data from the previous day until the time of the scheduled dataload for the current day.

  • Click Absolute Date Range to specify an absolute range for the report.

    For the From date, use the Calendar tool to choose a date. As time passes, the From date will not change. However, the To date is always today's date.

    You can specify that a date range has no lower or upper limit by clicking Range has no lower limit (the range begins with the earliest date for which data has been loaded) or Range has no upper limit (the range ends with the latest date for which data has been loaded), or both. The Include this value check box specifies whether data for the corresponding date is included in the report.

    For more information, see Entering Dates.

Site The Site parameter for scheduled reports cannot be modified. It is set to the site selected for the package.

or individual reports not contained in a package, you can select a site. The default is “All Sites.” However, selecting “All Sites” could cause the report to take a long time to generate. To generate reports faster, select an individual site.

Trend Selection Choose Daily, Weekly, or Monthly to select the time period over which to chart trends.
User Select the users to include in the report. The users you can select are pre-filtered based on the site you selected.
